Derived module from to handle iges and igs files.
from OCC.IGESControl import (IGESControl_Reader, IGESControl_Writer,
from OCC.IFSelect import IFSelect_RetDone
from pygem.nurbshandler import NurbsHandler
class IgesHandler(NurbsHandler):
Iges file handler class
:cvar string infile: name of the input file to be processed.
:cvar string outfile: name of the output file where to write in.
:cvar list extensions: list of extensions of the input/output files.
It is equal to ['.iges', '.igs'].
:cvar list control_point_position: index of the first NURBS control point (or pole)
of each face of the iges file.
:cvar float tolerance: tolerance for the construction of the faces and wires
in the write function. Default value is 1e-6.
:cvar TopoDS_Shape shape: shape meant for modification.
.. warning::
- For non trivial geometries it could be necessary to increase the tolerance.
Linking edges into a single wire and then trimming the surface with the wire
can be hard for the software, especially when the starting CAD has not been
made for analysis but for design purposes.

It should have proper extension (.iges or .igs)
